Breaking News ! A migrant drowned today as he tried to get to Britain from northern France via a makeshift boat.The body of a man, who cannot be identified because he was not carrying any documents, was found on the beach at Sangatte, next to Calais, on Sunday morning.Next to him was a life vest – one typical of the kind that migrants wear as they pack rigid inflatable dinghies bound for the coast of England, or by those using makeshift crafts. On Sunday morning the French Navy intercepted 11 boats containing a total of 191 migrants trying to get across the English Channel. Up to 60 migrants have been picked up in the English Channel by Border Force today after 170 people were caught trying to get to Dover yesterday Unconfirmed reports say around 60 were brought into the Port of Dover in Kent during the morning after they were intercepted by a Border Force cutter in a number of small boats in the English ChannelOn Saturday, nine dinghies containing 201 migrants were stopped, while 102 migrants in seven boats made it to Britain.Pascal Marconville, the prosecutor at nearby Boulogne-sur-Mer, opened a criminal enquiry into the drowning and confirmed that the man 'had no identity papers on him.'Mr Marconville said he was 'aged in the 20 to 40 range' and was of Middle Eastern appearance.'An examination of the body does not reveal the intervention of a third party,' said Mr Marconville. Yesterday Border Force officers detained 170 migrants trying to cross the English Channel in small boats in 12 incidents on Saturday -the largest number to attempt the crossing so far this month He added that the position of the corpse and the absence of footprints in the sand around it made it clear that the 'body was thrown back by the sea'.He said it was likely the victim had drowned trying to make the crossing this weekend and that his body had washed up on the shore just a few hours later.Mr Marconville said officers investigating the incident would work with the migrant communities based in Calais and Dunkirk to try to establish his identity and the circumstances around his death.The man's body was found by the emergency services at 8am, following a call from a member of the public.Ambulance staff attempted to revive the man, but he was declared dead at the scene. The latest drowning follows a war of words between France and Britain over who should be preventing migrants making the perilous sea journey between the two countries.Before Sunday's tragedy, Chris Philp, Minister for Immigration Compliance and the Courts, said: 'We are taking action at every step of these illegally-facilitated journeys to make this route unviable.'We are working closely with the French who today have stopped 222 people from making this dangerous crossing, seizing boats and equipment and intercepting people inland.'  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next French navy warship ESCORTS a boat full of migrants across...
